Democrat Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin recently announced that she would be backing the partisan impeachment effort against President Trump.
The problem for Slotkin is that she represents a district that President Trump won big in 2016.
Many of the very people Slotkin claims to represent do not want her to impeach the president, something they made very clear during a rally on Monday.
During the rally, Slotkin addressed her reasoning behind the decision and said she will continue to support impeachment despite any political consequence.
Slotkin represents an R+4 congressional district that Trump won 51-44 in 2016

When she tried to defend her position on impeachment, however, those in attendance began shouting her down.
In response, the Democrat commented, “Ok, I’m just going to continue, because I’ve got the mic.”
Take a look:
They do not sound happy.

“I’m just gonna keep rolling because I have the mic,” says Rep. Slotkin as protestors persist.

Slotkin, overcoming cheers of "four more years": "Ok, I'm just going to continue, because I've got the mic."

This sounds like an organic, spontaneous protest not like the tightly scripted, organized, manufactured protests at Republican town halls. That matters because those people are most likely actual voters in her district.

Not only tone deaf but direct feedback deaf.

They haven’t learned from Heidi Heidkamp in the Kavanaugh vote. It’s a career killer.

Slotkin is one of 31 Democrats who represent districts that Trump won in his 2016 election.
The Dems are getting REKT in their districts. This impeachment hoax is the most obvious case of political suicidal in modern times and these fools continue to charge ahead. The stupidity is breathtaking. https://t.co/HVXpWNVbW3
